Since the Nakba, #Israel has been waging an #Economic war on the Palestinian people; It robs us of our rich natural resources , drowns us in poverty & unemployment, steals our taxes, exploits us as cheap labor & destroys the infrastructures of our local means of production
In response to the #Israeli state violence practiced against the #Palestinian economy, we launched the #PalestineEconomicWeek . The "developed" Israeli economy was built on de-developing our #Economic infrastructure.
In addition to the expulsion of 85% of our Palestinian population, The significance of #Nakba is also represented in the institutionalized confiscation and looting of the vast majority of #Palestinian property.

Through the Absentee Property Law #Israel took control of lands, public buildings, homes, shops, banks, hospitals & holy sites. In addition, about a million head of livestock, agricultural & industrial equipment, household contents, books and personal belongings were looted.
